Hard to believe that here I sit with my 6th grader, who is telling me about the PowerPoint he had to do (hated) on the Joseph Kony (pronounced ‘coin’ he said), the leader of the LRA, the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda. The project was a chronology of the kidnapped boys lives. As dad, hard to decide between smiles and choking up about the kids dutiful acceptance of our travels together, and how far they’ve come with their own reflections.
Tomorrow? #2 joins soccer team with local Zambian kids. Yes, he’s a tad nervous.
